Swim Lessons

The City of Abilene proudly presents Swim Lessons at Adventure Cove!

Join Pirate Pete and his band of misfits as we learn how to be safe in, around, and beside the water.

Swim LessonsLessons are taught by Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors.

What you can expect at your first lesson

  • Your instructor will evaluate your child to determine if they are in the correct class.
  • Your instructor will begin to build a warm and friendly relationship with your swimmer so they can start establishing some trust. That way, when new or more challenging skills are introduced, your swimmer will cooperate.
  • We teach water safety skills first. Once your child has been introduced to how they help themselves in water over their heads, then we move towards teaching basic or intermediate swimming skills.
  • Bring towel, sunscreen and water/drink. Goggles and hair caps are fine.

Our Policies

  • Please let the instructor instruct. Sit far enough away from your child where you can see them but not interfere with the lesson. If your child misbehaves, let the instructor handle that. If the instructor needs to call you over, they will.
  • Be on time, we do not offer make-up lessons or refunds if you miss.
  • We will contact you if there is a need to cancel due to inclement weather. For those lessons canceled due to weather, we will try to make those up on Fridays.
  • Lessons are not admittance to the park for the day. If you plan on staying, you must pay our regular admission fees.

Cost 

  • $75 for each session of 8 lessons
  • We accept all major credit cards, no cash or checks
